Stamping with Friends Blog Hop - Birthday

Stamping with Friends Blog Hop

I'm excited to be participating in my first Stampin' with Friends Blog Hop. A Card Sketch Challenge with a Birthday Theme is the focus of this blog hop. I created my own card sketch (my first of many, I hope) and then designed a birthday card with it. My card features products from the Pansy Petals Suite and one of our newest In Colors, Fresh Freesia. I hope you like this card as much as I loved designing it.

  • Card front layer (DSP) = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Small card stock square = 1 1/4" x 1 1/4"
  • Large card stock square = 1 3/8" x 1 3/8"
  • Card stock for sentiment = use size and shape to accommodate your chosen sentiment.

Pansy Petals Suite by Stampin' Up!

Such a pretty card for a spring birthday or simply for someone who loves flowers in general or pansies specifically.
Pansy Petals Suite by Stampin' Up!

The pansies were cut from the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper using the small pansy die cut from the Pansy Dies. I fussy cut the small leaves from another print in the Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper pack. I placed a small Pale Papaya rhinestone from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels in the center of each pansy for a bit of bling. I wrapped Fresh Freesia Open Weave Ribbon around the entire card front and tied a knot at the right side. The sentiment from the Pansy Patch stamp set was stamped in Fresh Freesia ink on Basic White card stock then punched with the Double Oval Punch. I decided to layer white on white ovals.

I die cut another small pansy from Pansy Petals DSP and adhered it to the inside of the card for an added touch.

Masking Technique with Delicate Dahlias

Masking isn't just for stepping up your Halloween Costumes. In fact, Masking is the name of the Stamping Technique I demonstrate for you in this video. You will love it. I make it easy with my tips. You'll be amazed at the depth that it creates in your stamping. It's a great technique to use with flowers and groups of images or even to create a scene like the Peaceful Deer standing in front of or behind a tree. So watch, learn, then grab your sticky notes and Paper Snips and get started masking.

Card Dimensions:

  • Basic White Thick Card Stock = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored & folded at 4 1/4"
  • Basic White for stamping = 5" x 3 3/4"
  • Mossy Meadow layer = 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"

 

The Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set is perfect for demonstrating the Masking Technique. This is a Sale-A-Bration stamp set I got FREE. You can too when you place a $100 Stampin' Up! order with me by September 30th.

Stampin' Up! Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set - Mary Knabe (3)

 All you need to get started masking is some sticky notes and your Paper Snips!
Stampin' Up! Delicate Dahlias Stamp Set - Mary Knabe (3)

The results you get with the Masking Technique are amazing. The dahlias look more realistic with flowers in front of and behind others and with the stamped leaves behind the flowers.

Color Coach Card PDF's

As requested I am posting PDF's for the Color Coach Cards you may have seen me use from time to time in my business, including in my Facebook Lives. Once downloaded, you can print the sheets, then cut the cards apart. I like to have mine mounted on the same color card stock. Color Coach cards measure about 3" x 4" when cut apart. Cut your card stock 3 1/4' x 4 1/4". You can punch a hole in each of the cards and put them on a 2" ring which makes the cards very easy to use.

Builder Punch & Stamparatus Technique

The Stamparatus is one of the BEST stamping tools you can have in your craft room. I HIGHLY recommend it for all stampers. It's #1 use for me is doing repeated stamping - like for making 100+ Christmas cards of the same design. BUT, don't think that is all the Stamparatus does because it does so much more! This video is the 2nd in my Facebook Live Stamparatus Series. I'll show you how to maximize your time and eliminate all that waste of card stock you often get with using Builder Punches.

(If you missed the 1st video in my Stamparatus series, you can find it further down in this post.)

 

Sweet Strawberry Bundle & Stamparatus by Stampin' Up!This photo shows my set up before I begin stamping. Notice that I have the strawberry stamps on the top sides of the stamping plates as I stamp those first. The strawberry tops and leaves are each on the reverse side as I'll stamp those second in a different color. Remember to have the stamping plates in a vertical position when removing them from and placing them in the "hinges" of your Stamparatus base.

Sweet Strawberry Bundle & Stamparatus by Stampin' Up!

I really do enjoy making my own gift bags and coordinating tags. There's something very satisfying about taking an ordinary, plain bag and making it special! I typically purchase kraft and white paper bags for this purpose.

Inspire Create Share Blog Hop - Sale-A-Bration

Once again, it's time to Sale-A-Brate Stampin' Up! style! Special incentives are in place for those who Order, Host, or Join now through September 30th. This month the Inspire Create Share Blog Hop Group is sale-a-brating by sharing projects using products featured in the Summer Sale-A-Bration Brochure. SOOOO many great products to choose from!

For my ICS Sale-A-Bration blog post, I chose to use the Feels Like Home Stamp Set. You can get this stamp set FREE with a qualifying order of $50 US (before sh & tax). I think it's so pretty and has a homey, vintage look about it. I made two cards to show you that you can color the stamped image as I did with my Stampin' Blends or keep it simple without coloring it at all. You could also color just one part of the stamped image leaving the rest untouched to "spotlight" the red door or blue bicycle. No matter how you use this Feels Like Home Stamp Set, you're sure to bring a smile to those receiving your hand stamped cards.

Cutting Dimensions: Basic Black card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", scored & folded at 4 1/4" on long side. Basic White embossed layer is 5 1/4" x 4". Basic White for stamping is 4 1/4" x 3" and layered onto Basic Black card stock measuring 4 3/8" x 3 1/8".

The Timeworn 3D Embossing Folders works great for a vintage like background on this card.

Another Free Friday Download!

FRI - YAY!!! Yay, it's here. Friday. Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am. It's been quite a busy week so I'm looking forward to a little rest & relaxation and time with friends and family this weekend.

I have a wonderful Free Friday Download for you today. This one features a fun twist on using the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder. I actually used the de-bossed side of the card stock after running it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with the Bloom Hybrid Die. Who would have thought that simply turning over embossed card stock would give us a whole new look for a card. I love it. I love the simple elegance of this card. The layers of Just Jade with Basic White and the Just Jade gingham ribbon are just the right amount of color without taking away from the simplicity or elegance of this card. Add a sentiment for just about any occasion you can think of or use it as is for a note card. Enjoy the photos but don't forget to click on the link to download your free PDF to make this card.

Hybrid Embossing Folder? What's That?

Have you heard about a new category of Embossing Folder? Let me introduce you to Stampin' Up!'s Hybrid Embossing Folder. A hybrid embossing folder gives you the luxury of die cutting and embossing in one easy step. In the following Facebook Live Video Replay, I demonstrate the Art in Bloom Bundle which consists of the Art in Bloom Stamp Set and the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder. Note that the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder comes with a set of 9 dies that coordinates with both Hybrid Embossing Folder and the Stamp Set. You can use the dies separately, the embossing folder separately, or use them both together to cut and emboss flowers in just one easy step! Take a look at my demonstration to see just how amazing and versatile this new product is. While the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder is the only one of its kind in the annual, you can look forward to another Hybrid Embossing Folder in the Holiday Mini Catalog which launches August 3rd.

Pretty Paper Piecing Cards

I'm so excited to show off one of my favorite stamp sets, Beautiful Moments, AND to show you a favorite technique too, Paper Piecing. Paper Piecing is so fun and can be used as an alternate method of coloring your stamped images. Enjoy my video demonstration. I hope you will be inspired to use the Beautiful Moments Stamp Set and to do some Paper Piecing on your own hand stamped cards.

FYI...My Paper Piecing Demonstratrion includes making 2 cards. If you joined my Facebook Live on the evening of 6/16, you will recall that just as I started making the 2nd card (the fun fold card) all the smoke alarms in my house started going off. Fortunately, I am fine and so is my house. Turned out to be 1 faulty smoke detector that tripped all the others too. Therefore, I demonstrated my 2nd card the next morning so be sure to check out BOTH videos below.
